How is a DM in the penalty box making an assist on the goal?


Yes! Im so confused that most people here believe he is playing a DM role just because he has defensive responsibilities. I do not want to see him as a CAM. Nguyen is better than him in that role anyways.

If Klinsmann sticks with the 3-5-2, i hope we see:

--Altidore(I guess)-Dempsey--
Ibarra---Nguyen---Yedlin--
---Bradley--Mix-----
-Hedges-Besler--Jones

Also, Bradley needs to get his shit together.

If Jurgen goes to a 4-2-3-1 where is Mix supposed to go? You realize that Bradley's loss of form coincided with his changed role on the field for us? So shouldn't you be assessing causality as....

Mix and Bradley did change postiions

hehe, i giggled

But that game noone is a defensive midfielder because in a 5 man backline, you shouldn't really be using a DM

I would also argue we played w/o one in the second half as well. I mean Trapp was playing the wrong side of the diamond, he should have been lower than Bradley, bu the was consistently higher. The real honest to god truth is that Bradley likes to start low and then work his way up

I giggled again

That's a box to box guy, but that def gets in the way of

1. other box to box guys who don't cover properly

2. A true DM, because then there is no pendulum and Bradley is stuck on the same level as the DM when they win the ball back, making an effective bucket formation and a HUGE seperation between off line and defensive

as far as CM for Gold Cup is concerned, there is really one big question to answer... are you trying to use jones as CB or not?

if you are, its got to be a 4 man back line. you cant ask a CM to drop to CB AND ask him to play the central position in 3-man back line at the same time

a 3 man back line requires a full-blooded CB in the middle (and sorry, geoff cameron does not qualify either) to keep things organized.

THAT is why this weeks game was a complete waste of time.

if you keep jones a CM you are back to the bradley/jones discussion

if you go with jones as CB, its brooks/jones and IMO its got be either morales or williams supporting bradley in the center of the park
